It is painted in the style of David Siqueros or other Mexican Muralist painters.".

The subject is an intense woman. One name for the woman comes to mind but we are not allowed to mention it without suffering the wrath (and possible lawsuits) of overly protective name/copyright owners (One name that comes to mind would have the initials, FK).

Studied: Abbott Art School, Art Instruction, Inc. Member: San Diego Watercolor Society, Watercolor West.

Robert Landry attended high school on the East Coast then went into the military service during World War 11. After the war, he studied art in Washington, D.C. and Minneapolis on the G.I. Bill. He became a commercial illustrator for the United States Air Force Graphic Arts Division at the Pentagon, and art director for the Federal Aviation Agency and Convair Astronautics. After the late 1940s, Landry began a serious painting career and started exhibiting fine art watercolors. His paintings often depicted regional subjects with buildings, boats or coastline structures. Creating a mood was important to him and gives his works a narrative quality.
